Accessing shared folders
« on: December 16, 2016, 01:29:58 PM »
Hello! I had Avast Internet Security 13.3.2280 installed in both my Surface Pro 4 and Dell Venue 8 pro, both of which run Windows 10. The two computers are in the same Homegroup.

When I connect my Venue 8 Pro to a Wifi hotspot created by the SP4, I can see SP4's name in the Homegroup, but I cannot access it or the shared folders.

However, if I enter the SP4's IPv4 Address (\\, I am able to access the folders.

But I want to be able to access my SP4's files without using the IPv4 Address. What can I do about this? Any help is very much appreciated!
